Information for those who wish to see an orthopedic surgeon *Please be sure to check

Orthopedic approach

Our hospital has an emergency medical care center, and for highly severe diseases such as multiple trauma, spinal cord injury, and limb amputation that are difficult to accept at other facilities, we have emergency medical department, general medical department, anesthesiology department, cardiology department, etc. We work in many clinical departments such as vascular surgery and neurosurgery, as well as various occupations such as nursing, rehabilitation, nutrition, and medicine.
In addition, since we have several specialists in the spine, upper limbs, and lower limbs, we also actively accept patients who have been referred by their family doctors and need surgery for spine, joint disease, etc. is being treated for

However, it is difficult to provide long-term social hospitalization and outpatient treatment other than surgery as desired as a characteristic of regional core hospitals that need to handle patients transported by emergency and to perform highly difficult surgeries. We would appreciate it if you could understand that we may cooperate with local doctors to continue rehabilitation or continue taking internal medicine at nearby facilities.

In addition, our hospital has the Ibaraki Regional Cancer Center, but we do not treat primary malignant tumors in the field of orthopedics, and refer them to specialized institutions.

Addressing Severe Limb Injuries

In recent years, an ortho-plastic approach has been recommended for severe extremity trauma.

This is a treatment method that performs both orthopedic treatment (bone, joint, blood vessel, nerve, tendon, ligament, etc.) and plastic surgery treatment for soft tissue (skin and subcutaneous tissue) reconstruction at the same time.
This not only avoids amputation, but also preserves maximum limb function.
It is necessary to complete both treatments as soon as possible after the injury.

Addressing spinal diseases

In addition to two supervising doctors, our hospital treats patients with spinal diseases as a team of spine specialists belonging to the University of Tsukuba Orthopedic Surgery. Each of the two instructors has performed more than 2 surgeries for spinal diseases, and almost all surgeries for spinal diseases can be performed at our hospital.
It also features a hybrid operating room, monitoring, full-spine see-through bed, microscopy and the latest medical equipment required for spinal surgery.
Cooperation with other clinical departments (Emergency and Emergency Medicine, General Medicine, Brain Surgery, Cardiovascular Surgery, Gastroenterological Surgery, Urology, Anesthesiology, Pediatrics, Radiology, etc.), which are most important when performing highly difficult surgeries. We will also correspond with multi-professional staff working in ICU and wards.

However, surgery is not the only option for spinal disease, and surgery is performed only after a physical examination and diagnostic imaging such as MRI is performed to understand the disadvantages of surgery and possible residual symptoms. Please note that we may return the child to his/her family teacher without recommending it.

Approach to Minimally Invasive Surgery

Conventionally, when performing fixation surgery, it was necessary to remove muscles from the back and shave bones, which was accompanied by considerable muscle damage and bleeding.In recent years, the technology of lumbar lateral interbody fusion (LLIF) has advanced, and it is now possible to perform this procedure with only a 5 cm incision in the flank.By using this technology, we can expect a reduction in the amount of bleeding, less pain after surgery, and an early return to society. There are two types of surgery, XLIF and OLIF, and the surgery is called OLIF (Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion). facility has been certified.

If you are suffering from lumbar spinal canal stenosis, lumbar spondylolisthesis, lumbar spondylolisthesis, lumbar degenerative scoliosis, intervertebral foramen stenosis, etc., this procedure may be indicated, so please contact us first.

Efforts for acute treatment of proximal femoral fractures in the elderly and prevention of secondary fractures

For hip bone fracture of elderly person, we aim at operation within 48 hours after injury as much as possible.In addition to providing the best acute treatment through multidisciplinary and multidisciplinary collaboration, we provide rapid and reliable secondary fracture prevention to prevent future fractures.

Clinical research (to everyone who undergoes orthopedic surgery)

We are currently participating in, or planning to participate in, the following clinical studies.
